are tweeting you and tweeting me, they're like what's going on with benghazi? why don't we know more about what happened to these people those are four americans dead and we're going other the fiscal cliff. there's still unresolved issues. >> what i don't get is if there are four murders in any town or city in this country, and on september 11th it was still unsolved, it would still be front page news. >> right. >> for some reason if we ask questions about it. >> you're obsessed with benghazi. >> we're obsessed or politicizing it, and the irony of it is the way to end the discussion is to give the information. all of it could be ended that way. >> where is the investigation? this is the longest-running investigation. columbo could have solved this by now. they didn't send the fbi until what was it, you were all over t. five weeks after the hit on september 11th. the fbi was still not on site. it's all just bizarre. >> that's why we need anna wintour. let's put her in charge of the investigation. maybe she'll get the answers. at least she'll be dressed well. >> tell me about your radio show. wha

a quick question on susan rice. do you believe the benghazi incident disqualifies her to be secretary of state? >> it will prevent her being confirmed until the white house comes forward with the answerses to all the questions all of us have been asking. what happened on the 16th of september when she went on the talk shows and talked about blaming the attacks in benghazi on an anti-muslim trailer in the united states when, in fact, we've come to learn that intelligence people knew it was a terrorist raid and we had no explanation as to why we couldn't protect our ambassador and lost our first ambassador in the line of duty since 1979, if those questions aren't answered then there's not going to be a confirmation in my judgment. >> all right. i have to leave it there. georgia republican senator johnny isakson, thanks for coming on. >> thanks, chuck. >>> optimism over the fiscal cliff is fading in washington but not on wall street. they continue to believe a deal is coming. the market rundown is next. and from secretary of state to new york city mayor, michael bloomberg's crazy specula

the policy and what the findings were in benghazi. the secretary of cia did to the go. and so susan rice did. on that fateful sunday after the ambassador's assassination. i think that's probably the first example, first lesson. she was out there by herself. i mean make no mistake about it. the chorus of support was pretty muted. and when the iticism came she-- the president said she was extraordinary and got a big hand at a cabinet meeting but i didn't see anything further organized on her behalf. an there were obviously beyond john mccain's own apparent vendetta from the 2008 campaign, there was when you get susan collins and people like that starting to line up against you, i mean it seemed to be a building that was going to be a tough fight. >> i would just say she was not her, she became i think for the opponents a symbol of the libya policy which a lot of people didn't like the way the libya thing was handled even before benghazi. and so if should not reflect on her professionalism and competence but she became a symbol. >> woodruff: we'll find out in a few days whether it's john kerry

republicans for not immediately calling the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya a terrorist action. in her letter, rice wrote, "the position of secretary of state should never be politicized. i'm saddened that we have reached this point." in u.s. economic news, the number of americans filing new claims for jobless benefits fell sharply last week to its second- lowest level this year. and retail sales rebounded in november, rising 0.3% but that seemingly good news did little to help stocks on wall street today. the dow jones industrial average lost almost 75 points to close at just under 13,171. the nasdaq fell more than 21 points to close at 2,992. the european union came a step closer to a full-fledged banking union today. after an all-night meeting in brussels, e.u. finance ministers agreed to give the european central bank oversight of eurozone banks, as well as banks in other e.u. countries that choose to opt-in. the european commissioner for economic and monetary affairs said the agreement was an important step forward for europe. >> last night's decision on the single supervi

? the benghazi attacks? >> the benghazi attacks, you know, i believe there will be a report coming out tomorrow at the pickering group that will obviously present their view of what to place and where the problems were. my sense is that on that day, that when you look at what place in benghazi, that it is -- as i was these kinds of situations come that there's mix here, but clearly with regards to one of the facilities involved a direct attack on that facility. i think that there's no question that extremists were involved in those attacks and i think that we were able to try to respond as best we could at the time. we have learned a lot and will continue to learn a lot from that incident. i think it's very important progress in an area where people can be exposed to that kind of threat that we be able to respond and respond quick week in order to make sure that doesn't happen again. >> have you seen the benghazi arb and do you support peripherals like vickers for criminal prosecution on basis of leaking classified info to zero dark 30 producers? >> you know, that matters before the ig and i'm

about benghazi. she's a consumer of it and therefore that -- this qualifies her to be secretary of state on fox news. i mean i don't know how much more black and white the hypocrisy -- >> stephanie: as you and others have pointed out, the iraq war obviously cost us god knows how much blood and treasury in the final analysis. the benghazi attack, as horrible as it was compared to the iraq war, not even close right? >> right. so condy rice helped initiate a war plus $3 trillion, 4,000 american lives untold number of iraqi dead and susan rice was reacting to a terrorist attack that killed four americans and in the eyes of the republicans eyes of fox news and the eyes of the right wing crazies these are now equal events. it is -- thankfully, the whole thing seems to have petered out. it has been one of the most frustrating and maddening smear campaigns we've seen in awhile. >> stephanie: it really is. a woman of such obvious inelect and capability and it -- >> also mentioned last week, you know, g.o.p. gets absolutely s
